Pink Floyd exhibit ticketed by CTS Eventim 

CTS Eventim has been named as the official ticketing partner for the Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, to be shown in the Dortmunder U event facility in Germany.

The exhibition has received worldwide attention, with more than 150,000 visitors expected to attend the German edition across five months starting from September 15.

It showcases the legendary rock band Pink Floyd from the 1960s to the present day, with tickets already on sale.

Edwin Jacobs, director of the Dortmunder U, said: “With CTS Eventim, we have teamed up with the best possible partner for this unique exhibition. No other ticketing provider in Germany has such enormous expertise in the art and culture field. CTS Eventim’s extensive coverage of rock and pop genres, especially, will help us entice as many music fans as possible to Dortmund.

“By hosting ‘Their Mortal Remains’, the Dortmunder U is putting itself on an equal footing with some great European museums – and we want that to be reflected in the number of visitors we draw.”

The London display of Their Mortal Remains, which was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2017, attracted more than 300,000 visitors as well as considerable public acclaim.

Karsten Elbrecht, vice president sales at CTS Eventim, said: “Being the exclusive ticketing partner for such an outstanding exhibition as ‘Their Mortal Remains’ is something special for us. We want to play our part in inspiring as many people as possible to visit the Dortmunder U.

“The event combines rock appeal and visionary art, so it also means a fascinating challenge for us as sales partner. We believe there’s a great future for events like this and we want to help create a resonance in the Dortmunder U that’s as inspiring as the exhibition itself.”
